Kollywood superstar Rajinikanth has hit the headlines after an unidentified person made a bomb threat call. According to the reports, in a call, at 108 ambulance control centre (in Chennai) at 10.30 am, an unknown man claimed that bombs have been planted at the actor’s residence in Poes Garden. Soon after the call was disconnected, a team of police officials and Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) rushed to the Rajinikanth’s Chennai residence only to find it to be a hoax.

Reportedly, the team thoroughly checked the security guard’s cabin and area outside the actor’s house. While the search operation was on, Rajinikanth’s family members remained inside their home owing to the global pandemic. When the senior officials requested to let the police team in for checking, the actor refused to allow them in. So, the official waited for 10 minutes and left after thorough checking. While the cops declared it to be a hoax call, the actor did not comment over the issue.
Meanwhile, the police are trying to locate the caller. The cops said that this is not the first time that they received a prank call like this and they alleged that it is the same person, who had made similar threats in the past. As the news of a bomb threat given to superstar Rajnikanth made rounds on the internet, the fans took to the micro-blogging site (Twitter) to condemn the act.
